OK so i have posted this Q on 2 other forums with no results. so, i here i go again! my motherboards onboard audio does not work and i need a sound card with an internal spdif connector on it. the reason:so that i can connect my asus engts250 graphics cards audio to it. my graphics card requires this connector, either form the graphics card to the motherboard or form the graphics card to the sound card, via a spdif connector. someone please give me the names of some sound cards that have this feature.

One should be enough, I have closed the other threads. Possibly a glitch causing it to be posted multiple times.

You never know. Maybe running backups on the server or something.

Just wondering, could you run the SPDIF cable into an external connector and run the cable through an open PCI slot? I don't think I've ever seen any with internal slots (that I can think of).

It's about the cheapest I could find. The price really jumps, some over $200.

Depends on what your system is. Might be worth looking an upgrade to the Mobo.

I've found, in my experience, that Turtle Beach makes a pretty solid sound card. Their Montego DDL has S/PDIF In and Out. It retails for about $60 more info available @ http://www.turtlebea...ontego-ddl.aspx I haven't used this card, but I'm currently using their other PCI board in my desktop and it works great.
